Spring in the North {Nature Photography, High Prairie, AB}

Spring has always brought mixed feelings for me. It’s such an exciting time of growth, renewal, and promise, as one looks forward to warmer, brighter days ahead. The snow melts and the first greens begin. And the sounds of spring are welcoming to the ears, after the cold silence of winter. Mixed with the excitement… Read more »

I’m hoping that my goals for balance in my life may be realistic and attainable, as I look… Read more »

Diaries from the Puppy Place

I haven’t blogged in a good long while, so it’s high time I shared some photos and stories of our recent escapades. We are raising eight puppies, and this new adventure has been the reason for my recent blogging hiatus. As I prepare this blog, the puppies have finally settled down for their nap, after… Read more »

Hike at Curley Sands-Mesa Butte Provincial Park-Kananaskis Country

On Sunday, at Brodie’s suggestion, and because it was on our summer bucket list, our family went for a hike in K-country. We’ve lived here for eight years, and have not explored very many hiking trails, or the back country, literally out our backdoor, so it’s high time for us to start taking in some of… Read more »

Epic Swarm Catch near Longview, AB

Last night was truly memorable. And although It wasn’t technically a swarm catch, it was definitely an experience. The actual swarm had happened a few days earlier, and had found a home in an old abandoned schoolhouse building. We believe it was the old Hartell Schoolhouse, located a few kilometres North of Longview. A local… Read more »

The Calgary Zoo Through a Child’s Eyes

An Afternoon with our Busy Bees

Yesterday was a lovely sunny day, and the first warm day after a spell of cold, rainy, and snowy weather, here in the Foothills. The first day the bees could fly, and forage in three days. And forage they did, on the ever emerging fields of dandelions, at our home near Millarville. I know to… Read more »

Our goal was to create a fashion shoot with a look and feel similar to what you’d see in the Style pages of the magazine, Cowboys & Indians, to showcase… Read more »

Science, Innovation and Creativity Unite at Telus Spark

Yesterday we took our boys to visit the Telus Spark Science Centre in Calgary. Once we discovered that the Dinosaurs in Motion exhibit was there, we knew we had to include it in our family outings for this week. This was our family’s first visit to the Science Centre, and it was a very fascinating… Read more »

Action Photography Captures from Sunday Funday

I’m a bit behind on my blogging, as it’s been a busy past few weeks. Several evenings of  Hockey Portraits for the Pond Hockey League in Black Diamond, volunteer responsibilities, helping with the kids at school, and a suddenly, albeit briefly, sick boy have kept me hopping. So on Sunday, the gorgeous temperatures meant it… Read more »
